Selkirk advance to district title game against ACH…
Selkirk and Inchelium faced off in a semi-final matchup of the NEA Distirct 7 1B tournament. A win would put the Rangers in the finals of the tournament and guarantee a spot in the regional tournament, which is exactly what Selkirk got, pulling off a 59-43 win over the Hornets.
It took to the second quarter before one of the teams made a move after a 6-6 tie in the first. Selkirk kicked things up a notch in the second when the offense caught up with the defense, posting an 18-7 period score to take a comfortable 11 point lead into the half. The Rangers offense kept clicking in the third allowing the team to build that lead up to 19 as they went into the final quarter of play. A small Hornet run was nowhere near enough to overcome the Selkirk lead, and the Rangers punched their ticket into the next round.
Jenna Couch led three players in double figure scoring for the Rangers with a game-high 24 points. Bree Dawson added 17 points, and Whitney Dawson pitched in 10 for Selkirk.
Meika Heath was the leading scorer for Inchelium with 17 points.
Selkirk takes on league champ Almira-Coulee-Hartline for the district title Feb. 16 at 5:15 p.m. at Deer Park High School.
